The Fresh Air Fund--Hosting Children who need Fresh Air

I received this e-mail regarding an opportunity for those interested to serve as host families. Please see below for details and direct any questions to Sara. Her contact information is below. Please also pass along to others that you may know who might be interested. Thanks!


I know that this isn't something that you typically post about, but I thought that you and the readers of Our Adoption Journey would care about this issue. Even though the Summer is in full swing, The Fresh Air Fund is still in need of 850 host families. Host families are volunteers who open their hearts and homes to children from the city to give them a Fresh Air experience that can change lives. If you could help to get the word out it would really help us place these wonderful children into a loving host family. It's only for up to two weeks, but it's an experience that can change their lives forever.

I was hoping you could help by posting a mention, tweet, or by putting up one of our banners on your site. Please let me know if you are able to help or if you have any questions.

Thank you so much,

Sara Wilson,
